The University of East Anglia and the Royal Marsden School in London have announced a new educational partnership.
The university will validate professional degrees taught by the school, which is part of Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.
“The Royal Marsden School is entering an exciting period of growth and development”
The school offers a range of post-registration and postgraduate degrees for healthcare professionals, including nurses.
Students who successfully complete the validated courses will be awarded a degree qualification by East Anglia.
As well as validating degrees, the university will also validate individual modules as part of the new partnership, which starts on 1 September.
Professor Ian Harvey, executive dean of the university’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, said: “We are committed to innovative education that supports healthcare workforces to offer safe and effective care to patients.
“Consequently we are delighted to be working in partnership with the Royal Marsden School to validate their important portfolio of professional degree courses,” he said.
Dr Cathy Wilson, head of the Royal Marsden School, added: “We are delighted to be working closely with UEA to continue to develop and deliver sector-leading courses to meet the needs of healthcare professionals.”
